Quillabamba coffee region in Peru pictures

Quillabamba coffee region in Cusco Peru

Quillabamba is a coffee region about 4 hours away by car from Cusco. Quillabamba is at the ‘ceja de selva’ means at the border of the jungle. I visited some coffee farms over there together with my friend Raul from Kaffee 3 Granos. Raul showed me the entire coffee process from harvesting to producing a great cup of specialty coffee.

See some of the pictures of Quillabamba’s night life to the beautiful landscapes this coffee region has.

Arabica coffee is the specialty in Peru. A top-20 producer of the coffee beans, Peru has a strong reputation for excellent roasts and for ethical sourcing. Whereas other countries have faced criticism for their failure to ensure fair business practices, Peru’s CENFROCAFGE cooperative has united more than 80 farmers’ associations in order to guarantee 92% organic production and 100% Fair Trade certification. Overall, the demand for Peruvian coffee has risen drastically in recent years because of these efforts.

These beans come from small farms around Quillabamba. Tomorrow we are roasting a ‘blend’ of all these coffee beans. 100% Arabica beans. Mainly Typica, Caturra and Catimor.
